The latest in-classroom educational resource from AgScape is “An Exploration of Pig Farming in Ontario”, a Teacher’s Guide for Grades 5-10. The resource was developed in collaboration with Ontario Pork.
The 68-page resource contains an overview of pig farming and has three unique lesson plans for Grades 5-6, 7-8, and 9-10, as well as a comprehensive list of relevant and useful resources for educators.
Topics covered include: The History of Pig Farming, Pig Production and Terminology, Pig Farming and the Canadian economy, Human Nutrition and Health, Pig Farming and the Environment and even more topics that will help contribute to students becoming informed food citizens.
With a new school year just around the corner, AgScape said in a release that it is looking forward to being able to share this new resource with students and teachers in their journey to learn more about agriculture and food in Ontario.
The resource is available for teachers at agscape.ca/resources.
